Don't get this version:


I have been meaning to try a Rotring and picked up a lava 600, the same design you said not to get. Is there anything wrong with this one or is just not as good as the older 600?

Just to be sure I bought a NOS 600 in Silver of the Pencil-fi approved model off of E-bay an hour ago.

Just picked up one of these from the comments in here and elsewhere

Ordering was a ***** until I found the link for International orders
Plus it was only $20 + $9 for shipping

Got it in black, but now I'm debating getting another in silver....damn you head-fi

I'm not sure if there is anything wrong with them but I haven't used one myself. I believe its the redesigned model which looks like it would be better suited to carrying around since you won't poke yourself as easily.. the classic Rotring 600 can be a little dangerous when carried in a pocket.

Forgot to quote :P

I havent used the 600s but I feel that the Promate is slightly grip heavy. I have no problems though. I feel like if it was more heavier at the other side, it would be hard to balance it on the hand.

Haha no problem. I figured someone might be able to benefit from the site. I tried google translate and it worked but it kept getting messed up after I clicked checkout. Then I found a blog where someone explained what you had to do. Just click on International Orders on the right an it explains it all for you
